Mother's Day

Mother's Day is and always has been a big deal for me. It's the role I've always wanted to play. I had a wonderful mother, who , unfortunately, died at the young age of 55 from breast cancer. She was funny, smart, kind, hardworking and loved all of us very much. I've missed her so much over the years and wonder if she would have been proud of the woman and mother I've become. I'm pretty sure she would've been.
My three children are truly a blessing. They've all grown up into wonderful adults , who I am very proud of.. Their friendship is an added bonus. I truly enjoy spending time with each and every one of them. When we get together with the entire family the laughs never stop.
Tomorrow, our daughter is getting married. What a wonderful Mother's Day gift for me. I'll be giving thanks for another wonderful human being becoming a permanent member of our family. Happy Mother's Day to me!

Our Grandson's 7th Birthday!

I've always thought that being a mom was the greatest position on earth. That is, until I became a grandma. I cannot express how much these children mean to me or how much they make my heart swell. We have 3 grandchildren and each one is unique and has a completely different temperament and personality from the others. Yet,, they are all so wonderful and special. My grandson , Evan, turned 7 this week. He wanted to invite his teacher to his party, which he did. She came and seemed to really enjoy herself. She told me , on the side, that she's taught a lot of kids over her career, but, that Evan has the best manners and is the most polite and kind child she's ever taught. She also added that he's extremely smart!. :)   I know he's very smart and I'm very proud of that, but, I'm more proud of the fact that she's noticed how kind and respectful he is. He's always aware of other's feelings. What a wonderful little boy.  I hope his personality doesn't change and he continues to be the awesome boy he is today.
Happy Birthday, Evan!
